Anyone know about the new PA canopies??? Can't Post

I was reading in this months Parachutist about the new canopies that PA are supposed to be releasing. Has anyone heard any further information on these? PA is supposed to be having some new press releases towards the end of April. They have a canopy that is supposed to he considered "ultra-elliptical" and a few other canopies. Sounds interesting.

One weird coincidence. Precision was going to manufacture Brian Germain's canopies to help him keep up with demand( Samurai, etc), but Brian told me Precision decided not to do that.

Who knows, but they still have Brian's designs on computer

The descriptions of these canopies are "two new crossbraced ultra-ellipticals, two different nine-cell cell ellipticals, as well as a new reserve canopy."

Interesting...

Since George was one of the chairmen on the Icarus Project, my guess is that his mains are going to be very "VX-like" which should be interesting. I used to own a VX-74 and liked it quite well, but could not see keeping it as my "primary" main due to it's excessive ground-hungriness. I wonder who has been testing them?
